Before I got my first summer job, the world of work was a mystery to me, a mystery I was not interested in solving.

We are Saskatoon's daily newspaper
Introduction

On Friday, October 17, 1902, G. Wesley Norman and his brother, Leonard, tugged at their Washington hand press to produce 1,000 copies of Saskatoon's newspaper, The Phoenix. The weekly was produced in a small frame building on 21st Street.

The paper was then bought and sold a couple of times and was reborn in 1907 as the Daily Phoenix. It was published three times a week until 1909 when it became a daily and was renamed the Saskatoon Capital in 1910.

In 1912 the paper was sold again to W. F. Herman and Talmage Lawson and its name was changed from the Capital to the Saskatoon Daily Star.

During the 1920's a series of sales and purchases between newspaper owners in Saskatoon and Regina left Saskatoon with two daily papers, Saskatoon Daily Star and The Daily Phoenix.

Then, on January 1st, 1928, the Sifton family, publishers of the Winnipeg Free Press bought and amalgamated the papers to form the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix.

The Siftons owned the paper until it was purchased by Hollinger Newspapers in 1996. Hollinger was purchased by CanWest Global Communications Corp. in 2000. The StarPhoenix is now a division of Postmedia Network Inc.
